    Hi Anonymous,

    I recommend that you run the nanoDDSCAT+ tool in the browser instead of a local installation. We even provide remote cluster resources if you need to run a large simulation online with Nanohub.org

    If you want to locally install, then you will need to have all the required compiler packages as well as a local installation of Rappture in order to build and run the nanoDDSCAT+ tool. Installation is intended for a Linux environment. There is a Makefile provided in the /src/ folder which will automatically compile the executables for you. After you build the tool, you will be able to run dda.py and ddaconvert.py through the Rappture interface automatically as they will be available from the command line. The file to run with Rappture is called "toolmenu" and is also in the /src/ folder.

     

    Please let me know if you have any further questions!
